How to learn math: free Stanford course

How to Learn Math
Registration is open for a new short course on Stanford University's free on-line platform.

Designed for teachers of math (K-12) or for other helpers of students, such as parents, "How to Learn Math" consists of eight 10 to 15 minute-long sessions intended to change students' relationships with math.

In addition to videos of Professor of Mathematics Education Jo Boaler, research ideas, and peer- and self-assessments, her course includes interviews with students, Udacity's Sebastian Thrun, Stanford Professor Carol Dweck, and others.

The self-paced course launches Monday, 15 July, and closes Friday, 27 September.

Boaler, the author of books such as What's Math Got To Do With It?, also serves as editor of the research commentary section of NCTM's Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (JRME).
